Sandbank City: 150 Years of Lagos is an important illustrated historical book that traces the history of Lagos touching on the social, cultural, trade and architectural roots of Lagos. It tells the fascinating story of a city that grew out of colonial “interests” to become one of the most important economic and cultural hubs in Africa.

The book is written by Professor John Godwin OFR OBE and Architect Gillian Hopwood MFR. They came to Nigeria in 1954 when Lagos barely had a population of 600,000 people and have spent almost 60 years documenting the growth and evolving character of Lagos.
